Last day of one of the hottest months we have had.  He has been playing again and this time he fancied making a bread board in pear wood.  If he decides to go ahead with them, they will be on the web site later this week.  If he decides not to go ahead with them, I will keep the one he has made.

One of our favourite chairs, the folding Savonarola.  Just for fun, B made one in pear instead of the usual mahogany.  Quite a difference eh?

Sometimes it can be fun to take an item and have a play.  These mannequin kits have been decorated with decopatch which means taking bits of torn up paper and a special glue and working like papier mache.  The range of papers available on the internet is amazing and you can end up with a completely unique model.

Even with the air conditioner going, the workshop temperature got to 28°   Way, way too hot to be running the machines.
